THIRD MAINLAND BRIDGE: LASG TO SHUT BRIDGE FOR 48 HOURS, EXTENDS OPENING TILL END OF FEBRUARY

Updated: Feb 18



The Lagos State Government has extended the reopening of the Third Mainland Bridge to the end of the month to allow the contractor cast the final rehabilitated expansion joint from midnight of Friday, 19th to midnight on Sunday 21st February 2021.


In affirmation to the statement released by the Federal Controller of Works, Mr. Kayode Popoola, the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde stated that the bridge will be shut off completely from vehicular movement to enable the contractor to set the expansion joint concrete without vibrations caused by vehicular movement in order to achieve the desired strength of the concrete.


He said that the concrete would require between three to four days to set in before the preparations to finally re-open the entire bridge to traffic, adding that the casting was also slated for that weekend to reduce traffic congestion along the axis for motorists.


The Commissioner, therefore, advised Motorists from Ogudu, Alapere and Gbagada to use Ikorodu Road, Jibowu and Yaba as alternative routes, while Iyana Oworoshoki-bound traffic from Lagos-Island, Iddo, Oyingbo, Adekunle and Yaba are enjoined to use Herbert Macaulay Way, Jibowu and Ikorodu Road as alternative routes.


Oladeinde assured that Traffic Management Personnel would be deployed along the affected routes to minimise and address any traffic impediments during the closure.


Commending Lagosians for their constant support and cooperation towards developing the State, the Commissioner said the government is working assiduously to actualise its Smart City vision.
